WeCare about sweat
WeCare project: Cognitive-Multisensing Wearable Sweat Biomonitoring Technology for Real-Time Personalized Diagnosis and Preventive Health Care.
Biomarkers in human sweat can contain useful information about the physiological state of a person. Currently, however, this information is rarely used. The WeCare project, that recently received a SNSF Sinergia grant, explores how biomarkers in sweat can be used to optimize physical exercise.
